What is an Electric Vehicle?

Charging is easy

The number of public stations is increasing and expected to grow rapidly. Charging can be done anywhere there is an outlet.

  • At home
  • At work
  • Public charging stations

EVs on the Market

There are many electric vehicles on the market today and their numbers are growing. These include:

  • Battery electric
  • Plug-in hybrid
  • And more

How They Run

EVs look like traditional gasoline-powered vehicles, but they don’t run like them. Instead, they run partially or fully on battery power and can often be recharged from external power sources.

Why Drive an Electric Vehicle?

EVs boast benefits beyond those to your wallet and the environment:

  • Convenient home charging
  • Promotion of better health through reduced emissions
  • Unique safety features
  • Support for energy independence
  • Encourage more efficient use of the energy grid
